Halo around the Sun.

It was an interesting atmospheric phenomena in the sky this afternoon - a halo. They were lightly colored ring with reddish inner edge surrounded the Sun, and sky inside looked like a dark cloud, at least darker than sky outside the halo. Usually they are formed by sunlight going through ice-crystal cloud. I took a picture of it, with dish antenna blocking the Sun (I didn't want to burn my camera sensor).
